Sure, you love to receive gifts, but also you love to make it to. Ok, in this small simple, but useful tutorial I’ll show you how to create your own packaging gift paper to make your gifts unique.


Ok, in the beginning create a new document about 1000Ñ…1000 pixels. If you want to make print of this paper in future use the resolution (DPI) of 300, but I just tried the default resolution (DPI) of 72. Fill canvas with grey color (#4a4a4a).
